Workin on some comish stuff right now... a troublesome mahogany maori shifter knob for some nice hot rodders 9knuckles are screaming... and a mask for the coach of the Islanders but was able to seal Kewpietang in time for Oasis.

Needed someone to guard the salt water taffy while Toni sold MUNKTIKIs!. Had a couple nibbles but wasn't ready to part with him yeat so quoted outrageous prices!

Maybe twenty inches tall...

Find Kewpie...

Finally!!! Git dat thang finished. I dig the stain.

And it is heavy enough for a shifter knob! 1/2 lb. probably.

Love the detail on the shifter knob, those spirals are fun fun fun in the mahogany which is "Chippy" to start but you have to chance knife directions every1/4 turn or so so you aren't cutting INTO the grain like you are doing in Both the last 2 photos. Cutting Into the grain like that makes for a ragged edge or detail line. On that "V" notch line you swap the chisel around so you cut With the grain and it becomes much easier.Does that make sense? Just one of those things you pick up after awhile carving wood.
Love that Shirthank, Where did you find it?

Hahahaha! For those playing at home that is a really cool Crested Hawaiian Tiki head started here at Freaky Boutiki by Heath himself and abandoned for a few months. Fear not we shall endevor to drag Heath back to carving beautiful Hawaiian style tikis. A talent like Heath's is a terrible thing to waste.

Anyhoo... The Maori Shifter was a hit and I'll post pics of it instaled and rockin down the highway as soon as I recieve them.


On to the next comission, A foot or so tall mask of the Glendale AZ ISLANDERS team logo for proud football coach as a gift to the team!
